Weddings and Happenings at The Full Moon Resort ( A must see)

Weddings Full Moon Resort and Catskills

The Light in there tent is a Photographers dream (brides love it too !)

Aperture Photography spends a lot of time photographing weddings in the Catskills.  Hunter Mountain and Windham Mountains in particular.  Along with the Mohonk Mountain House in the New Paltz, New York.  I photograph weddings in some of the most beautiful places in the world. They all are great.  But there is also an absolute gem up Route 28 not far from Kingston and Woodstock, NY.  The Full Moon Resort.

 A wonderful place to be married or recharge your batteries is The Full Moon Resort.  It is a peaceful unspoiled getaway up Route 28 in Big Indian, NY.

 I just read an article in Ulster Magazine May/June 2012 and there is a lot happening at the Full Moon.  Along with weddings events they have some of the biggest names in music history mingling and teaching fans and many other artists. Wow it is just perfectly different place for weddings, events or the happenings that occur daily.

 The Full Moon has a different feel than any place I have ever been too.  Although some of the other great Catskill resorts are incredible.  I get the feeling the Full Moon Resort will be a very important place to be.

 I hope to be there soon, either photographing a wedding or event or just visiting a very unique and beautiful place.

 For those who don’t know about The Full Moon Resort check it out!

Aperture Photography High School Senior Portraits for the Guys

Being well prepared for you senior photo session can make the difference between average and fabulous photos. Follow these easy tips and you’ll be well on your way to looking your absolute best. If you have any additional questions. Mindset

Photographing males is much different than photographing females and we understand that. We’ll make you look like a guy, so relax. You won’t feel uncomfortable or have to do any awkward, girly posing.

Style

As a general rule, guys are more complacent when it comes to photos. Even if it’s just for your mom, please come prepared.  We (and mom) want you to look your best.

Dress in a style that expresses who you are, but dress nicely.  If your style is a bit sloppy or you’re rather apathetic, have your mom, girlfriend, or other girls that are just friends help you. Trust us on this one.

Clothing

We give you unlimited wardrobe changes, so bring A LOT of options. The more clothes we have to choose from, the better. This will give us flexibility in matching your clothing to backgrounds and the surroundings.

Group your clothing together on hangers. Make sure items are free of wrinkles and ready to go. (Please don’t come everything stuffed into a gym bag like many guys have done.)

Make sure you’re comfortable in your clothing and that it flatters you. This will ensure that you like how you look when viewing your photos.

Avoid stripes and plaid. Solid colors work much better than patterns.

Bring a variety of colors and mix the level of styles. Some should be dressy, some dressy-casual, and some casual.

Bring black and/or dark gray t-shirts to wear under other shirts. White undershirts stick out and photograph poorly.

Avoid t-shirts with large graphics or logos. They distract from the main subject, which is you.

Shoes

We don’t expect you to get as excited as the girls about shoes, but bring a variety of casual and dressier shoes. Avoid gym shoes or flip-flops since these will appear too casual when viewing your photos.

Shaving

Please come to your session cleanly shaven. Retouching stubble costs extra and won’t look as good as a clean shave. If you have facial hair that your mom despises, do her a favor and shave it off. We promise it will grow back.

Hair

If you have longer hair, make sure it will stay out of your eyes during your session. Have it trimmed if necessary.

Don’t make any drastic changes like shaving your head or dying your hair around your session date. Otherwise you’ll look back at your photos and wonder “What was I thinking?”

Props

They’re great! Bring props that help show who you are. Some popular choices are:

  • Sports equipment (football, basketball, baseball bat, etc.)
  • Sports uniforms
  • Musical instruments
  • Activity related items (dance, art, school clubs, etc.)

Glasses

Most lenses have a glare. The safest option is to check with your eye doctor and ask if they’ll loan you a similar pair without lenses.

Complexion

We retouch you photos, so please don’t be concerned about minor breakouts. We have you covered! If your acne is more severe, you’re still okay. We had bad acne is high school and understand! We’re happy to help you out with some extra retouching.

Friends & Parents

Friends or parents are welcome and often can be a help. However, if they distract you, it may be best to meet them when the session is over. You’re welcome to have a couple of shots with a girlfriend, best friend, sibling, or parent at no extra charge.

Braces

If desired, we can remove braces in Photoshop for an extra charge. Otherwise, try not to worry about them. Give a natural smile and enjoy yourself. A good smile with braces is far better than the awkward smile that comes when you try to hide them.

Studio or Location Aperture Photography has you covered.
